As I mentioned last week, you can vote for the winner of this year’s DC Poet Project. It’s hosted by Day Eight, a Washington, DC-area arts organization. I serve on Day Eight’s board.
Here’s how to vote:
Visit the Day Eight Facebook page on April 18.
Watch video readings from four poet contestants.
Like the reading you enjoy most.
The poet whose video gets the most Facebook likes will win the 2020 DC Poet Project and receive a $1,000 contract to publish a collection of their poetry. You can RSVP to the event on Facebook so you don’t forget.
